Scott Walker in London this week for trade mission


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is in London for a trade mission that comes on the heels of a similar trip last week by another potential Republican presidential candidate, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

Walker's trip runs Monday through Friday. It's his third overseas trade-related trip as governor and comes as he's tries to bolster his foreign policy credentials.

The trip will be highlighted by a Wednesday speech Walker is set to give at the prestigious Chatham House on the importance of global partnerships on the economy.

He also plans private meetings with high-level government officials and business executives, factory tours and a networking round table with graduates from the University of Wisconsin and Marquette University in Milwaukee.
